Common Sense Kids Action is proud to support the Pre-K for MA campaign

Momentum is continuing to grow for the Pre-K for MA campaign, which now has a coalition of more than 1,000 "Voices of Support." We are very excited that groups including Common Stand for Children, Strategies for Children, and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents, including Fall River Superintendent Meg Mayo-Brown and Springfield Superintendent Dan Warwick, as well as our most recent supporter Gerald Chertavian, founder and CEO of Year Up and chairman of Roxbury Community, all have signed on as Voices of Support.

I also wanted to share this video from Haley Creed, an educator and Pre-K for MA supporter, which helped garner more than 300 Voices of Support for the campaign. In the video, Haley discusses the difference that she's seen high-quality pre-K make in her students, and she draws on that experience to talk about the importance of investing in pre-K.

We're moving in the right direction in Massachusetts, and we want to thank you for your support. Check out the Pre-K for MA campaign for ways you can get involved with the campaign. Then, sign up to be a Kids Action advocate to stay informed on the issues facing kids and education.
